November 4, 1996 Sporthalle – Hamburg, DEU

Show Notes

Those who attended both German shows report Hamburg is a better show with a better crowd. A great version of ‘Hail Hail’ is sung with the lyrics, “… the lucky ones; I refer to those in front.” ‘Elderly Woman’ is abandoned after the first few lines (saying they have a “better song”), switching to ‘Better Man,’ which includes the ‘Save it for Later’ bit toward the end. A whipping version of ‘Whipping’ leads to a spirited ‘Mankind.’ Ed introduces ‘Even Flow’ saying, “This next song’s called, ‘I’m beginning to see the light.’” PJ is sounding relaxed and comfortable with ‘Sometimes’ now. Ed comments, “We played a little show on the radio last night … I was just thinking that tonight’s been so much more real. I wish we would have recorded tonight,” leading to a super version of ‘Rearviewmirror.’ Ed intros ‘Off He Goes’ saying it is a “… little story … and then we’re gonna take requests.” ‘Not for You’ has a funky sound featuring an extended ending/improv. ‘Glorified G’ makes an unusual appearance on this setlist. After ‘Daughter,’ Ed asks, “Up for more?” and PJ moves into ‘State of Love and Trust’ with Mike very ON. Super show!
